Local non-profit Johnson Creek Watershed Council and the PSU Indigenous Nations Studies Program are partnering to provide an educational and family-friendly talk on Pacific Lamprey on December 6th from 6-8pm.
Pacific Lamprey are an ancient fish native to the Pacific Northwest. These fish are an important first food for Native American tribes throughout the region. Recently, Pacific Lamprey populations have declined rapidly leaving Native American leaders and Western Scientists alike searching for a solution. Join us to learn more about the cultural significance, Traditional Ecological Knowledge, and western science surrounding this legendary fish.
Speakers will include:
Greg Archuleta, Grand Ronde, will share about the cultural and historical/contemporary importance of the lamprey/eel to his Tribe. Cassidy Hayes, PSU Environmental Science major and Indigenous Nations Studies minor student will share her story. Judy Bluehorse Skelton, Daniel Newberry, and Janel Hull will also speak.
Light refreshments and snacks will be served.
Parking space is limited. Please consider taking alternative forms of transport. Minimal street parking avaliable. Paid parking available at Parking Structure 1 and University Center Building. Link to MAP HERE.
